Translation: Daisentai Goggle V (MoJo)

It's another SPECIAL REQUEST from 鋏ジヤガ (Scissors Jaguar), a fine patron of this blog who requested not just the Goggle V OP, but the ED as well! I'll post the OP for now; the ED will come tomorrow.

Goggle V is of course the 6th series in Toei's Super Sentai franchise. I have only seen one episode of it but it's pretty awesome. The show is probably most famous for its odd choice of theme for the team's fighting style: rhythm gymnastics. This works out nicely for the lady with the ribbon, and about as well as you'd expect for the poor dude with the ball.

Of course, there's no suggestion of that in the OP song, which is pure MoJo badassery. Check out the song on YouTube here, and the lyrics below the cut!

Song Title: Great Squadron Goggle V
Artist: Mojo
Album: Great Squadron Goggle V

tachiagare tachiagare heiwa no shishatachi yo
